From the time you walk into the narthex to a warm welcome until you leave the coffee and conversation time after the service, everything that happens on Sunday morning at Bloor Street United Church is part of worship.
You can expect a friendly inclusive congregation, thoughtful, relevant preaching, enthusiastic congregational singing, inspiring choral music that might range from a setting of a plainsong chant to an African American spiritual.
We try to provide an inspiring and visionary centre for worship where we can help each other to discover, develop and nurture our spirit and faith. To do this, our goals are to foster worship which is inspirational through empowering preaching, both traditional and innovative liturgy, music and the arts; worship that is participatory, inclusive and supports all elements of the congregation; and worship that reflects our commitment to a theology which is liberating. We are proud to be an Affirming congregation where each one of us is seen as a child of God.
We meet at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday throughout the year, except one summer month when we share services at Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church down the street. The church is located at the corner of Bloor Street and Huron Street, a block from the St. George subway stop, and has a very small parking lot. Parking is free for members and adherents. We hope you’ll come by and join us in worship!
What’s for Kids?
A learning time for young children is incorporated into every Sunday service. Afterwards children are invited to attend “church school” where their teachers provide fun and engaging activities, based on a United Church of Canada curriculum, for developing their Christian beliefs. If they choose, children may remain in the service with their parents or caregivers. For babies and toddlers, our nanny is available to provide supervised care during the Sunday service.
What’s for Young Adults?
An opportunity for “20-30 somethings” to explore questions of faith with the Minister in an informal non-judgemental environment, after the Sunday service.
